I don’t think any of us will ever forget our adventures in Postojna Caves, with magnificent cave formations and an unforgettable ride on the underground train. Iris was exhilarated and in awe of this fascinating subterranean paradise shaped by tiny droplets over millions of years. At times we thought that she wouldn’t be able to cope – surging crowds behind us, waves of tourists that come and sweep over you but then they recede and you have a chance to breathe. We were able to take in the enormity of all that surrounded us, the water that slowly dripped down the stalagmite deposits, some estimated at about 150,000 years old. The formation of Postojna Cave goes back to approximately three million years ago. A dripstone forest that had to be on our list of places to visit on our quest to see the Forests of the World.
